Then I hit a snag. I had then damnedest time with the handle. After the first bag was mostly made and I set the handle next to it...I wasn't so sure I cared for it anymore. But i forged ahead, only to cut it back out...and changing up the shape a bit in the process. So the bag you see here is not 100% complete because I am not sure about this second choice handle. It is not sewn in right now.
The orange floral fabric is vintage...and if anyone knows what it is, I'd love to know :) So I thought maybe the rope would go. Opinions...yes or no? btw - This bag generally has a round solid handle.
...come see Peacocks and Dragonflies' OADCC (one a day craft challenge)...she got me started on this :)
